A word of advice…

Kind of want to read Kelly Cutrone’s book now (this was in an e-mail Kelly sent to her employees).

– Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
– Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
– Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
– When you say, ‘I love you ,’ mean it.
– When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.
– Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
– Believe in love at first sight.
– Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.
– Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.
– In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
– Don’t judge people by their relatives.
– Talk slowly but think quickly.
– When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’
– Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
– Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.
– When you lose, don’t lose the lesson !
– Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
– Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
– When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
– Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
– Spend some time alone.

All great lessons!

  1. This email is just wonderful. The one about not laughing at other people’s dreams is particularly important — it’s a lesson I learned this year when someone belittled when I like to do.
    I haven’t seen Kelly Cutrone’s new book, but I have to say I find her absolutely fascinating.
